Notice under the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (the PPIP Act)

The primary personal information and secondary personal information (see definitions below) collected in this form is being collected by The Cabinet Office (contact details below) for the purpose of assisting public sector agencies to identify suitable candidates for appointment to a public sector board or committee.

Any primary personal information or secondary personal information that you submit will be uploaded into the “Boards and Committees Register”, which is managed by The Cabinet Office. It will then be provided, as necessary, to other public sector agencies to allow them to assess your suitability for appointment to a public sector board or committee. If you are determined to be suitable for such an appointment, your information may then be submitted to the NSW Cabinet, to the Minister responsible for approving your appointment to a board or committee, or to other public sector agencies, as necessary, to obtain approval of your appointment.

By providing the information submitted in this form, you consent to it being disclosed to those persons or agencies for the purpose of assessing your suitability for appointment to a public sector board or committee and to obtain approval of any appointment for which you are determined to be suitable.

You are not required by law to provide the information in this form. However, if you choose not to provide the primary personal information, public sector agencies may not be able to assess your suitability for appointment to a public sector board or committee or seek approval of your appointment to a board or committee. Provision of the secondary information will not affect that assessment or approval.

By providing this information, you accept that your secondary personal information may be used for the purpose of reporting on diversity statistics of candidates who have registered for public sector boards and committees. Such reports may be provided to the Premier, Parliamentary Secretary, Ministers, or other NSW Government agencies. This is directed to supporting agencies and Ministers to consider diversity representation on boards and committees and to look for opportunities to increase board and committee diversity. However, your name and any information that could identify you will not be included in any such statistical reporting.

You have the right to obtain access to your personal information under s. 14 of the PPIP Act. If the information held by a public sector agency is inaccurate, irrelevant, not up to date, incomplete, or misleading, you have the right to request that it be amended under s. 15 of the PPIP Act.
